Frequently Asked Questions

If I already have a double-pane window, is that energy efficient?

Although double-pane is more significantly insulative than a single pane window, you should be aware of the age of your windows. If your double-pane windows are older than 20 years, chances are, the seals have cracked, and there may be leakage. Also, old double-pane windows were made in an era before many of the advanced technologies like gas fillings, vinyl frames, and low-conductive spacers were readily available. Many of our homeowners replace old double-pane windows with new ones, and see significant energy savings.

What is the difference between vinyl windows and other windows?

A vinyl window is actually referring to the frame, not the glass itself. Glass panes remain “made of glass”. But the frame, the material along the edges that holds the window together, can be made of many kinds of material, including aluminum, vinyl (pvc), and wood. Vinyl has a low conductive property, which means that the temperature between outside and inside stay apart longer, and don’t pass through as easily as metal. This is the energy efficiency we refer to from vinyl windows.

Are windows from Canada different than windows from the USA?

What is most important to look for is the Energy Star Certified in Canada label. It is similar to the ratings system in the States; but for the Canadian market. Because Canada’s overall climate is trends towards colder winters, it is essential to have high-efficiency windows. Delco Windows & Doors carries a full line of certified high-efficiency windows.

What are gas-filled windows?

When a window is filled with gas, Argon, (and sometimes krypton and xenon) is injected into the space between the glass panes of the window. This forms a denser barrier, functioning much like water, that slows down the temperature transfer between the inside and outside of a window. Gas-filled windows are one of many features that help create energy efficiency. Older windows in your home likely do not have this gas-filled feature, as it a more recent development over the past 20 years.

Do I need to get a permit to install a new window?

A permit is required in the event that you will be making structural or material changes to your house as part of the installation. In other words if you are creating new openings, or increasing the size of your windows, a permit is necessary.

I want to make a larger window than what is already there. Can I do that?

In some cases, yes. However, it all depends on the load-bearing nature of the studs in your wall near the vertical sides (jambs) of your window. If they are transferring significant structural load around your window, it is not wise to adjust the width. Often times, the height of a window, however, is easier to change; still providing you a larger, more spacious, window.

Are Delco Windows & Doors made in Canada?

All our windows and doors are custom manufactured here in Canada. All components assembly is done right here, contributing to the Canadian and local Toronto economy. Delco is part of the manufacturing process. But we also offer service of design, installation, and follow-up.

Can I purchase a Delco Window, and have someone else install it?

While we can simply provide the actual window or door itself, and let you obtain your own installer, it is recommended that Delco handle the entire process. The transferrable warranty is available for full-service installations.

I want to stick with aluminum frame windows. Are there ones that are more energy efficient?

While our specialty is high-efficiency replacement vinyl windows, we do offer some other frame materials, including wood-aluminum hybrid frames, and newer aluminum framing, which has some of the energy efficient benefits of vinyl.

I see condensation inside my window glass. What should I do?

Condensation inside window panes is typically due to broken seals around the window, which let air transfer into the pane. Once this happens, the window glass loses much of its insulative properties. While in theory, the glass could be resealed, it is difficult and expensive to remove the unsightly condensation, as well as correct the future possibility of it happening again. It is best to replace the window altogether. New vinyl frame windows have better, longer-lasting seals.

How much money does an entry door cost?

There is a wide range of prices for entry doors. Steel entry doors are on the lower-range, about $1,000 - $2,500 CAD range. Fiberglass doors, with their sophisticated insulative materials, can range from $2,500- $3,000. Depending on installation options, these prices may change.

Does Delco warranty their products?

We offer a transferable warranty for our window and door products, all parts, as well as labour. Ask us for details.
